    I not really a gambler, but I was thinking it might make a good destination. Anyone been up there yet? Opinions one way or another?

    I haven't stopped yet, but it's been there my last couple trips to Kansas. One of my sisters actually stopped on the way up to Kansas last week. I guess they just have slots, bingo, and simulcast for horse racing. I have no interest until they get blackjack, which I heard may be within the next year.

    Might be a fun trip when they get a few more games going. Southern Oklahoma is very pretty driving, maybe do a morning drive and finish off there?

    It might make an ok stop if you just want to go for a drive, but it's not a destination in itself. There's not much around it, it's just kind of in the middle of nowhere. No gas stations, restaurants or hotels around.

    I drove past it 2 weeks ago and it is about 30 minutes from anything of any significance whatsoever. FYI, it takes a little over an hour to get there shooting straight up I35.

    Well, there's nothing around there but some of the best driving roads in the region. I think a morning drive and then end up at the Casino would be a great event. What do you think?

    Are there any restaurants at the Casino?

    Sounds like a great place for a Drop Zone or a gun range.
